The Sierra Club has announced several endorsements for the November 3, 2020, election.
What goes into an endorsement?
Our endorsement is based on a number of factors, including answers to our candidate questionnaires. Other factors may include a candidate's public record, past accomplishments, and the dynamic between their environmental stances and positions on social justice issues. If needed, we may ask candidates to interview with us before making a determination.
Why are some races not listed?
Not all seats are up for election at the same time. State Senate seats are a good example. There are also candidates up for re-election who face no challenger, which may influence our decision to endorse.
